The ongoing “Best of 2009″ idea continues with: Challenge. Something that really made you grow this year. That made you go to your edge and then some. What made it the best challenge of the year for you?
This one is tough. I have some fears that are completely absurd (drive-thrus, Mall Santas, PHONE CALLS?!) so whenever I am able to do one of those things it’s a big little victory for me.
But a challenge that comes to mind is public speaking. A common fear that most people aren’t bothered about enough to want to get over, for me it’s part of my job.
As an Information Specialist for the city and state, I meet strangers everyday wanting me to tell them about things. Small groups of people are extremely easy to deal with, thanks to all the plays I was involved with in hish school (go Drama!)
But there are times when my boss wants me to give a little speech in meetings, or, like this particular time, ON TELEVISION.
Turns out, if it’s something I know a lot about (like my job), I’m a pro!
It also helps when you’re in an elf get-up and can pretend you’re a sort of character (go drama!)
